One of the most enchanting rings popular today is the Asscher cut diamond engagement ring, created in the early 20th century by Joseph Asscher. By cutting a series of quadrilateral and parallel facets (step cuts) into the underside (pavilion) of a stone, the effect that is created resembles a mesmerizing windmill of light. These facets act much like mirrors and reflect the natural brightness and incredible clarity of this beautifully angled and symmetrical diamond.
